McGrath Highway

Somerville, Massachusetts

Since 1928, the McGrath Highway - between the Charles and Mystic Rivers in Boston - has increased motorists’ travel speed, to the detriment of all other modes.

Alaskan Way Viaduct

Seattle, Washington

Alaskan Way started as a rail yard to accommodate the City's industrial needs along the waterfront of Elliot Bay in the 1880s.

Niagara Scenic Parkway

Niagara Falls, New York

Stretching approximately 18 miles, the Niagara Scenic Parkway, formerly known as the Robert Moses Parkway, stands as a barrier between the City of Niagara Falls and one of the world’s most tremendous natural assets.

Route-34

New Haven, Connecticut

Route 34 in New Haven was originally planned in the 1940s to serve as a connection through the Lower Naugatuck Valley.

Overtown Expressway

Miami, Florida

Settled in the 1890’s before Miami was even incorporated, Overtown, originally "Colortown", is the historic heart of the city’s black community.

Terminal Island Freeway

Long Beach, California

Constructed during California’s mid-20th century love affair with the highway, the Terminal Island Freeway in Long Beach is today a perfect example of obsolete infrastructure.

Shoreline Drive

Long Beach, California

Connecting the Interstate 710 Freeway via Shoemaker Bridge to Alamitos Avenue on the eastern edge of the Downtown, Shoreline Drive takes many different characters, reflecting its various eras of expansion.

I-84 Viaduct

Hartford, Connecticut

The ¾ mile elevated portion of Interstate 84 begins at Sisson Avenue and runs through the heart of downtown Hartford, Connecticut.

I-375

Detroit, Michigan

Buffalo Skyway

Buffalo, New York

Buffalo is a waterfront city with a deep history along the shores of Lake Erie. With more than half of the city's waterfront left vacant, the potential for revitalization is immense.
